New Member and Owner

Hi all,

I am just finishing the restoration of a 73 Europa TCS and yesterday picked up a 69 Elan plus 2 as a new restoration project. Very happy with it!

No doubt I will have many simple new owner questions for the forum :-)

Quick question - is there anywhere out there where I can download both a parts manual and workshop manual?

Many thanks,

Welcome to the forum, it would be good to see some photos of your Plus 2 project.

You will find this forum very helpful for advice etc. You can view parts manuals here
http://www.rdent.com/manuals/index.html

But not aware of any downloads for workshop manuals.

I take it there's some Welsh heritage in there somewhere? So Croeso!

Welcome to the forum, looking forward to seeing photos of your car.

I have almost finished a complete nuts and bolts restoration on my Jan 1968 +2; this forum has been an invaluable aid.:-)

And greetings from Surrey, BC. Welcome, and you will find the forum members VERY helpful . . . almost as though we don't have personal lives but, rather, live vicariously through other members' projects :mrgreen:
